The Peony Garden Farewell Tour!

Each day this week I will share a project using products from the Peony Garden Suite. This suite of products can be found on page 82-84 in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The last day to order the Prized Peony Bundle is May 3rd. The stamp set and dies will carry over into the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog however, the 10% bundle discount will not, so grab the savings while you can. Also, the gorgeous Peony Garden DSP and Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder will be retiring and are both discounted while supplies last. Be sure to check out all the retiring product and savings by clicking the SHOP NOW link below. Remember the Host Code at checkout and if your product order is over $50, I will send you a package of the Basic White Notecards & Envelopes just for shopping with me!

Field of Flowers with FREE PDF













This quick and easy layout was shared with with my team by Donna Griffith last week. It has a very special effect with the way the ribbon is attached and slipped between cut.  I used the new 2020-2022 In-Colors Misty Moonlight for the sentiment and Bumblebee for the flowers.  This Field of Flowers stamp set is a great all around set and the font is so cool.  Granny Apple Green for the flower stems and then a burst of denim using the 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.

Here is a the PDF for this project, I just changed up the colors for this card….

Please comment if you give this a try.  I’d love to see your creations and interpretation of this layout.
